Brick in Commercial Design
Durable, versatile and timeless, our Glazed Thin Brick can work its magic in a variety of styles and commercial spaces.
Where Brick Can Be Installed
Our Glazed Brick is very well suited for commercial spaces and has been used many a time in restaurants, retail spaces, and grocery stores.
The only limitation you have with brick is that because it's made of more porous materials, our Brick cannot be installed in steam showers (regular shower walls are fine), shower pans, or pools. We also do not recommend it for commercial flooring but is acceptable for residential flooring applications.
Brick is the perfect choice for this Costa Rican hotel's outdoor shower wall:
Available in 28 lead-free glazes, you can have your pick between soft neutrals or more saturated hues:
Our Brick can be used as a decorative finish on exterior facades, as you can see from this San Francisco apartment building below:
Pro Tip: Exterior suitability is based on geographic location and factors unique to your application. Check with your Commercial Rep if your application is suitable for Glazed Thin Brick.

Trimming your Brick
Like your brick color samples, the edges of the brick will not come finished in your order unless specified. The only trim option we currently offer with our Glazed Thin Brick is a glazed edge-- either on the long, 8" side of the brick, or the short. 2.5" side:
Long and short edge glaze will be sold by the Linear Foot and quantities should include overage (see below for more info on ordering overage).
Also, keep in mind that we have 90" degree Brick corner pieces if you need to turn a corner in your project:

We can also make "Flat Corners" where the flat 2.5 x 8" brick is glazed on it's long AND short edge. Please make sure to specify if you need the right corner glazed or the left corner edge glaze. Orientation does matter!
Both the Flat Corners and 90 Degree Angle Corners will be sold by the piece and quantities should include overage.
Grout Space Matters
It's brick industry standard to include a 3/8" grout space in the number of brick pieces there are per square foot. At the recommended 3/8" install grout space, there are 6.12 pieces Fireclay Glazed Thin Brick/square foot.
If you decide to install your bricks with a tighter grout space after purchase, you will run short on material.
